Remember Katoucha…

logodefkplce1os6.jpg

After more than a week of search, the princess Peulh has not been found…

Katoucha Niane was one of the first African women to attain stardom as a supermodel. She was the face of Yves Saint Laurent, the French haute couture guru, in the 1980s before stepping off the catwalk to launch a campaign against female genital mutilation.

We will always remember her and may she rest in peace…

    oh my god!
    I met her once during Oumy Sy’s fashion show at the Metissacana cybercafe. She was presenting her collection and I just loved her charisma! We can still hope for a miracle since she has not been found yet. She is such a beautiful woman!!

    I hate to say that but I do not think she will be found alive…

    I hope her daughter is all right. I knew her growing up. No one wants to bear this type of news. Our prayers and thoughts go out to this family.

    Well the one that was raised by her mother in Dakar has to be around 30-31 today. I know she had a boy with a French man, and maybe another after that but her daughter was a playmate.
